, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh

screen the way that he is now. i think one of the lessons in the learning curve for president obama has been the importance of communication. a lot of different issues that are important to him to his presidency. you do have to have the presence. the whole purpose of these kinds of acts of terrorism is to destabilize you, make you afraid to get on the subway. to make you afraid to go into a mall. to make you afraid, no matter where you are, even if you're far from the actual incident. having sort of one person that is constantly communicating with you is very important. i mean we learned after 9/11 that when george w. bush didn't do it, rudy giuliani stepped in. so the whole country was waiting for him to come on the television for those first couple of weeks, because you didn't see the president. and i think president obama has learned the lesson that you do have to speak early, speak often, speak confidently and i'm glad he's kind of cautious, to be honest with you. i know sometimes there's a fetish in american for sort of bellicose language. it makes us feel we're going to get whoeve
. relieved citizens cheered in the streets. amazing sight. president obama appeared in the white house briefing room shortly after 10:00 p.m. to say thank goodness its over. certainly capturing the mood not only here in watertown but across this region. matt and savannah, back to you. >> where does this investigation go from here? nbc's justice correspondent pete williams has been working this story tirelessly around the clock. pete, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. the justice department says it intends to put dzhokhar tsarnaev on trial in a regular civilian court using the rules that apply in any criminal trial and that's renewing a debate about how to try terrorists on american soil. as soon as he is physically ready, dzhokhar tsarnaev will be subjected to questioning by federal authorities but in the beginning he will not be given the usual miranda warning about the right to remain silent. instead, the government will invoke a rule that allows questioning a suspect without giving advice of rights. >> there is a public safety exemption in cases of national security and po
. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> reporter: fox news is told investigators are probing a potential link to a islamist group as first reported on fox over the weekend. they were responsible for the attack on moscow airport. in response the group issued a statement saying their disagreement is with russia. they did not deny knowing the brothers. also according to one source who has reviewed that, they were undercut in their claims trying to deny any connection because they pointed the finger as russia as being responsible for these bombings which of course there is no evidence to support that, jon. jon: catherine herridge, lots of tangled leads to unravel here. catherine, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. jenna: for more on this now we'll bring in our next guest, chris voss, retired fbi special agent and hostage negotiator and manager of insight security. we talked you to last few times in. great to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna. jenna: catherine is reporting on there
charged with making threats against president obama and sending threatening letters to him and to a mississippi republican senator wicker. paul kevin curtis was arrested at his home in mississippi for allegedly sending letters to the president and senator wicker. final tests are being carried out right now to determine definitively if those letters are contaminated with the deadly poison ricin. as we know initial tests are often wrong, false positive. but the initial test did say they were contaminated with ricin. >> all right. and now one of these images most of us will remember from the deadly fertilizer plant explosion in west, texas. the city's medical director, his face bloodied, organizing the search and rescue effort after he had obviously undergone injuries himself. and then updating reporters on the situation. >> there was just a major, major explosion. the windows came in on me, the roof came in on me, the ceiling came in. i worked my way out to go get some more help. of course we lost all communication because the power went out. the station is badly damaged a wh
the nra. >> that's my only f-minus ever. >> you earned it. here was president obama's angry reaction wednesday after the bill, the gun bill was voted down in the senate. >> the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. they claimed it would create some sort of big brother gun registry even though the bill did the opposite. so all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. >> after this week and the vote in the senate, gun control wasn't going anywhere, but does this sense -- this was a big event for america -- the sense of increased anxiety about your personal safety, does that make gun control an even steeper climb? >> i don't know how much steeper it could be. let's understand, this bill was just about background checks, closing the gun show loophole, something the nra used to support. it was really not about reducing the number of guns that people already own or the kinds that they can own or anything like that. so i think what happened was, sadly, this took attention away, diluted the momentum for this bill. attention was paid elsewhere, and then it lost
obama that will happen any moment, we are told, four days since the bombing, a little more than a day and a night since a string of murder and mayhem marked the beginning of the end. tonight, we witness the end. it's over. [ wild cheering ] [ chanting "usa" ] >> applause tonight on the streets of boston, pent-up pride and fear, relief, a lot of people very, very happy tonight. people chanting, "usa," for the arrest of the second suspect. the only surviving suspect in the boston marathon bombing that claimed three lives the day of the bombing. forever altered the lives of so many more, claimed the life of a police officer just last night. the second of two brothers, the second of two boston marathon bombing suspects is in custody. 19-year-o 19-year-old, chechnyan american, his older brother killed last night in a shoot-out with police in watertown, about 20 minutes west of where i'm standing. now their flight from justice included the alleged murder of a police officer in cambridge. a carjacking, chase, bomb throwing. tonight it ended, a younger suspect cornered in a back yard boat shr
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
during your open periods. >> the obama administration has chosen to survive the suspect in the boston marathons in a civil trial. did they do the right thing? 90 seconds, sir. >> i believe that president obama and his justice department are completely committed to ensuring that justice is done in this case. all voted president obama last week. he said that justice would be done in this case. if in the opinion of president obama and his justice department, the proper place for prosecution is here in the federal district court system of the state of massachusetts, i believe that the court system here in massachusetts can provide that kind of a venue in order to hear this case. i defer to president obama. i defer to his justice department. if in their judgment, this is the proper place in order to conduct that trial. >> thank you, sir. mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> i think we have sufficient laws in our criminal system to prosecutor terror its, number two if you will. i think the effort to classify baptsant. nemy com i've been to gitmo and i've been involved in the process of trying to find

putin spoke with president obama last night and the two leaders are discussing the importance of working more closely together on counterterrorism in the future. the fbi as you heard said after interviewing tamerlan at russia's request in 2011, they sought and failed to get more information from russia's intelligence and state security agencies, so a lot of questions still to answer. did these brothers join existing separate chechen factions? if so, why weren't they attack ing russian targets? why did they go after their new homeland, the u.s.? this is a big mystery. tonight the president is commending his federal officials, also state and local officials, but they are still asking why did someone who was already in the fbi's database get through the cracks. lester? >> all right, andrea mitchell, thank you. >>> the police department of watertown where this all ended is only about 60 officers strong and over the last two days, it was tested in ways that even the biggest police forces will rarely or ever experience. this afternoon, i spoke with watertown police chief ed devoe about the lar
